A Few Big Assignments
Great Intro to the Subject
This class was tough.
I would highly recommend this course even if you aren't going into law. While I've considered that path, I knew I wasn't going to law school going into this class but I took it anyways because of the great reviews I've heard from my colleagues. After taking this class, I can say that I am not only better at understanding the constitution, I also can decipher any Supreme Court Case both past and present and I've learned life lessons along the way from the professor.
The class is seminar style which sounds difficult in a room of more than 100 students but Professor Rajsingh handles beautifully. He maneuvers through the course material in a way that allows cases to flow and build on precedents. I also learned constitutional theory which I wasn't expecting to but thoroughly enjoyed. I also learned the importance of logic not simply in cases of law but in daily life. One of the ways Professor Rajsingh assesses students is through legal briefs. This is where he gives you a prompt of 4-7 paragraphs and you have to find legal issues. This has not only helped me in legal matters in my life but also in arguments and debates because I can better address the separate issues at hand instead of lumping it all into one problem.

Advice for students:
This is not a class one takes to slack off and get an A. This is a logic-based, work-driven course and the professor works to establish such an environment. There are things expected of you as a student and if you do the bare minimum, this class isn't worth it. However, if you are a student who is down to actually learn and work with course material to extrapolate into life applications, then this is one of the most rewarding courses you will take.
